Bookish Delights* || With Illumicrate

I love books. That probably doesn't come as a huge surprise to most regular readers of my blog. After all, nearly every haul post I publish includes lots of new books. I also love subscription boxes. Also, probably not a huge surprise. I've sampled and reviewed a number of subscription boxes in the past; ranging from self-care to crafty, from pet care to food. I've tried 'em all**. But what was really missing from the subscription box market? A bookish subscription box. And then, by chance, I found out about two! Turns out, book subscription boxes are a thing and the first one I signed up to receive was Illumicrate!

Halloween Horror Flick Picks!

Did you know, watching scary movies is actually good for you?! It sounds farfetched, I know, but there's a whole article on why scary movies are actually good for you right here! How accurate the article is, I don't know. But it did get the juices flowing for tonight's blog post.

I am a huge horror film fan. It's practically all I watch - and the gorier the better! I've watched all of the films in the Saw series, more than once. And I've seen the original, as well as the remake, of A Nightmare on Elm Street. So I thought I'd share with you a few of my favourite horror films; just in time for Halloween! (Oh, and if you do decide to watch any of these, remember a big ol' cushion to hide behind if it all gets too scary!)

Breaking Barriers* || With bathing solutions

It's hard to imagine that one day, I'll be part of the senior generation. A generation that, for the first time in history, is going to exceed the number of youths, with those 65 and up  making up 16.5% of the global population by 2050! A rise that can be attributed to the fact that people are living longer, thanks to advances in healthcare and the overall improvement in the standard of living. 

Haul Post!

Ugh, you guys, I'm currently so ill with a nasty cold. Bloody Autumn, right? I'm joking, I could never hate Autumn. It's my favourite month! I thought I'd cheer myself up by looking back at all the lovely things I've been buying recently, and then share them with you, in this haul post! Get comfy, this is quite a long one! 

Ladies, if you find a bra that fits SO well, and is SUPER comfy to wear; never let it go! I've been wearing the Jasmine bra from Bravissimo for the last 10 years, and whenever they release a new colour/style, I'm quick to grab it! 

An interview with...Hannah Elizabeth!

      Well, would you look at that, I've remembered to post another one of these "An interview with..." blog posts. I am on a roll! Today, I'm super excited to be sharing with you my interview with Hannah, the lady behind the Hannah Elizabeth blog! I love her blog, so I'm thrilled to give  you the opportunity to get to know here better. I'll let Hannah take over now. Enjoy - and be sure to pay her blog a visit. I know she'd love that! 

2016 Autumn Wishlist || Guest Post

Autumn seems to have snuck up on many of us this year, maybe partly because the Summer never really got going properly so we weren’t ready for the change to come so soon. I know some people feel sad to say goodbye to the Summer months but for me, I’m actually really happy that Autumn isn't far away. The other morning I woke up and really felt the coolness in the air, even though the sun was shining brightly, there was a definite crisp in the air. It made me think about changing up the wardrobe from Summer to Winter, planning for the colder months ahead. With that in mind, I began browsing the new Autumn collections and was pleasantly surprised at how much was going into my basket! So, I thought I would share with you my Autumn wish list. I hope you enjoy!

Let's Talk Weddings: Engagement, Venues and The Dress!

I'm finally getting around to writing my first post in a brand-new, very exciting series documenting our wedding; from the engagement to the big day itself! I thought I'd kick the series off by talking about our engagement, and the early stages of planning that we're in currently. So grab a cup of tea and settle in, because this is probably going to be a long one!
